Bruce Halliday explains his theory that a Ghost Box opens a portal based on his own experience and communication with the spirit world.

Spirit Box Paranormal Vortex Portal
When I first started to use a Ghost Box to attempt communication with entities that where not of this physical world, which was pretty much before anyone was doing any serious research or experimentation in this field, I was more or less feeling my way in the dark as it were simply due to the fact that there was no one researching Ghost Box communication or documenting any data or theories concerning the equipment or the practice of live spirit communication itself.

A Ghost Box is a device that enables the reception of radio signals and dices them up into small bits and pieces or fragments of sound by sweeping the chosen band at a fast enough rate so that the dial does not stop on any one station. The theory is that an entity will use whatever bits of radio fragments it needs to form words and sentences to facilitate realtime, live spirit communication between the researcher and a non-physical entity, presumably the spirits of disembodied human beings.

As I stumbled through the first year or so of serious and intense research and experimentation, I had an experience that would put me on a path of discovering the "portal" or "doorway" that the device creates between our worlds when it is in session. The incident I am speaking of started when I began to experience light poltergeist activity in my home such as knocking, banging, small objects falling from my dresser etc.

This activity that was never present before in my home started me on a quest to figure out why and how it began to occur.

I thought and thought about the possible causes, was I imagining the activity and attributing coincidence to spirit activity? Did I get a spirit attachment from an investigation I was on and brought that spirit back to my home? What was the reason for these sudden incidences of paranormal activity?

The occurrences continued for days and it became apparent that something or someone was trying desperately to get my attention.

After exploring all the available possibilities the only explanation I could come up with was that my use of the Ghost Box and the communication it facilitated had something to do with the present situation.

My first reaction was that the box may have possibly summoned up some demon or negative entity that was now in the process of plaguing my home, but when I thought about it the activity that was occurring was completely benign and non threatening so the chance of a demonic or negative presence took a back seat to just a wayward entity.

I had deliberated about what to do for a short time and decided I would do a Ghost Box session in my home to try and communicate with any spirit that may be there to try and find a reason for its presence. At this time in the research there were only two models of Ghost Box the Frank's Box and the Joe's box. I was the owner of both but did not use the Frank's Box much due to it's poor performance. I predominantly used the Joe's Box in these early days of my research, this was a while before the hack boxes where even invented. These are newer devices that comprise of a hacked version of an off-the-shelf radio.

I set up a quiet time to do the session when no one was home and prepared the Joe's Box and my recorder for the session. I started the session with a single question, "are there any spirits here in my home?" The question was answered with a loud and clear "yes."

I proceeded to do the rest of the session and the messages I received led me to the conclusion that a wayward spirit had traveled through a portal that the device used in the session had created and was stuck or stranded here when the session was shut down and the box was turned off.

The Ghost Box needed to be in operation for the portal to be reopened and for the spirit to return to where it came from. After the initial "return" session all poltergeist activity stopped. After years of experience and hundreds upon hundreds of hours of communication with my spirit technicians and friends on the other side I have established this theory.

When turned on and in session, the Ghost Box opens a portal between our physical world and the spirit world. This portal is opened in order to facilitate the open line of communication that flows between our two worlds, this line of reciprocating communication relies on the exchange of energy and a melding of physical and spirit energy that is created in order to form a bond that can deliver the communication back and forth live between our world and the spirit world.

This portal or open door is always necessary and is created whenever a Ghost Box is turned on, the doorway is never unattended. There is always a technician or guide spirit that is in attendance and is monitoring everything that is happening during a session, that includes any passage through this portal back or forth.

I have spoken many, many times on this topic and I always recommend that a protection ritual be done before a Ghost Box session and a closing ritual be done before the session is closed and the box is turned off. The closing protection simply consists of the communicator asking the attending spirit technician to retrieve any wayward entities that may have traveled through the portal during the session and have them go back across to the spirit side, always ask for verbal conformation from the technician that it is ok to close the session and turn off the box, this may take a few attempts as it is necessary for the communicator to hear the conformation from the tech live in real time to know it is safe to close the session.

This is just a basic explanation of my theory of the open portal a ghost box creates and it is based on my long time experience and communication I have received from our spirit counterparts.
